### I want some codes in Matlab

I want some codes in Matlab programe of FEM for conduction. You can share for me please

### good Matlab codes for FEA

John Burkardt, at Florida State, has posted an excellent suite of Matlab routines for various partial differential equations.  They can be found here

### Thank you for your share.

Thank you for your share. It's very kind of you. I have found these code for a long time.

### Search for Matlab on iMechanica

I don't have any information on Matlab codes, but here is the search results if you type Matlab in the search box of iMechanica.  Hopefully you can find other mechanicians to help you.

### Primary unknowns of FEM formulation

In the FE formulation of beam element, generally, nodal displacement (v) and slope (θ) are taken as primary unknowns. What will be the obstacles if the nutral axis curvature (κ) is used instead of slope as primary unknown, along with nodal displacement?

### Formulation of beams for finite element

In developing weak forms for beams, the second derivation of weight function appears. So it is concluded that we need a C1 continuity element for beams. In order to use the C1 continuity between elements, the displacements and the derivatives of the displacement at the nodes must be degrees of freedom. So we should use slope (instead of curvature, which is second derivation of displacement). Also the loads imposed to the structure are considered force (that products displacement) and moment (that products rotation-slop) but we don't have such physical vision about what products curvature. So if we use curvature instead of rotation, we will face the problem of choosing load for that degree of freedom:d=[u1 θ1 u2 θ1]T : f=[V1 m1 V2 m2]Td=[u1 κ1 u2 κ1]T : f=[V1 ?1 V2 ?2]

### Finite element in cylinderical

I want to solve the poisson equatio in cylinderical coordinate system.Please help me.
